December 15-21, 1927 

Leaksville is taking on a festive air with Christmas less than a week away. 

Small Christmas trees have been placed along the sidewalks on Washington Street by Boy Scouts, and two brilliantly lighted trees are at each end of the street. 

The decorations are being done under the direction of the Garden Club, with the Boy Scouts assisting. 

Shoppers along Boulevard Street in Spray were startled to see two prominent people in a fist fight. The fisticuffs took place in front of Capps Pressing Club and involved owner T.A. Capps and Frank Lilly, Singer Sewing Machine agent. It broke out as Lilly pressed a claim that Capps had not paid an account to the Singer company. ... T.E. Williams was elected chief of the Leaksville fire department and S.A. Pilcher was elected assistant chief . ... J. Elwood Carroll of Reidsville will represent High Point College at the quadrennial session of the national Student Conference to be held this year in Detroit.
